The Longview Gallery in Washington DC invited David Jameson Architect to design an installation that investigates the relationship of art and architecture. The gallery space is housed next to the DC Convention Center in the shell of a 1930’s auto repair garage. Conceived as a spatial armature, Stalling Detritus, as the installation is called, creates a gallery within the gallery by weaving steel beam scraps through space that react to the topography of the concrete structure.

The spatial experience marked by the steel structure is activated by tectonic constructs crafted from wood or meshed plaster that respond to the unique pressures of four selected art pieces. Deliberate intersections of the armature cradle each art construct marking the confluence of art and architecture. Provided with a short time period to implement the installation, the decision to respond to found or reclaimed elements became a generator for the project.
